Clown World Chronicles: Mass Media In Clown World

The mass media has been a part of our lives for over a century now, even longer if one considers newspaper and wireless radio. And the whole time, it’s made us more and more detached from reality. The grotesque separation from reality that characterises Clown World wouldn’t be possible without the input of the mass media.

In normal world, the mass media serves to inform. A person doesn’t have the time to research all day, so they buy a newspaper to keep them accurately informed about the issues of the moment. They can then have meaningful conversations with other people who have been likewise illumined.

In Clown World, mass media serves to regiment public opinion in favour of the globalists who own it.

The main benefit to the globalists of controlling the mass media is that they can normalise the vacuous, soulless, rootless consumerist lifestyle that generates them the most profits. It’s no accident that watching television or Hollywood films puts people in the mood to consume – they were designed to have that effect.

Globalists also use their control of the media to manufacture consent for open borders.

An image of a drowned Syrian boy on a Turkish beach was beamed into the heads of every Clown World resident in 2015. The implication was that anyone who believes in borders is a child killer. After making people too afraid to speak up in favour of their national interests, the globalists then flooded the West with Third World immigrants, further destroying wages and pumping up house prices.

Consent for open borders is also manufactured by the mass media refusing to pay due attention to crimes committed against Westerners by immigrants. Coulter’s Law states that, in the case of mass shootings, the longer the mass media takes to tell us the race of the shooter the less likely they are to be white. The general rule is that crimes committed by whites are pushed front and centre; crimes committed by non-whites are hushed up.

None of this would be a problem if people were less gullible. If people were willing to think for themselves and to question authority, the mass media would be much less dangerous. In the depths of Clown World, however, most people believe this media to be made up of objective journalists who are employed to tell the truth.

This perception is maintained by further brainwashing. Anyone who suggests that the mainstream media cannot be trusted is written off as a “conspiracy theorist”, their concern dismissed as a possible sign of paranoid schizophrenia or similar. Distrusting the mainstream media is considered a moral defect, revealing a particularly malicious kind of antisocial intent.

In Clown World logic, there’s a small step between questioning the television and shooting up your school.

In reality, the mass media is owned lock, stock and barrel by international banking and finance interests, and they hire people to produce globalist propaganda. There no objectivity in it, any more than in the media publications of North Korea. There is truth in it, but it’s merely seasoning. The propaganda is the main fare.

That is why nationalists like Donald Trump get targeted so heavily. The mass media serves as a 24/7/365 wrecking machine, tirelessly ripping down anyone the globalists decide they don’t like. Eventually the whole world realises that to stick one’s head above the parapet is to attract the machinegun fire of reputational damage.

One feature of Clown World making the mass media more dangerous is that it’s difficult to find entertainment outside of it. Back in the day, one usually had a group of friends, neighbours or workmates who entertained each other with music or games. Either that or one spent time in Nature, hiking, hunting or fishing.

In Clown World, all those needs are met by screen interaction.

In Clown World, however, the mass media offers very little by way of pure information. Everything presented in it has been designed and calculated to manufacture consent for the objectives of its owners. This effect is so profound that the mass media can be described as the apparatus of propaganda.

Whoever controls the apparatus of propaganda controls the behaviour of the populace as surely as whoever controls the mouse cursor controls what happens on the laptop screen. They simply direct the talking heads on the screen to tell the populace what other people are thinking. The people who consume this media decide that, since everyone else thinks that way, they’ll think that way too. And so entire countries are regimented.

Today’s mass media works on a dopamine cycle. People get a dopamine hit from the feeling of being in touch with the dramas of the world, and they don’t get one if they fall out of touch. It’s a thrill to see footage of foreign conflicts. It’s a thrill to hear an expert say that someone else is an idiot because they believe something false. These dopamine hits keep people coming back.

The technologically advanced nature of today’s mass media means that it’s available all the time. Many people wake up and check their phones before they even get out of bed. The average Clown World citizen is plugged into the media matrix in almost every waking moment. The result is that there’s very little possibility of original thought outside of this totalitarian brainwashing apparatus.

Overcoming the nefarious effect of the mass media on our minds and behaviour requires two major steps. The first is to “unplug from the Matrix”, which requires aggressively curating what comes to our attention. The second is to find quality alternative media sources to replace the mainstream garbage.

Why They Stopped Pushing Class, And Started Pushing Race

Recent studies have shown that the frequency of race-baiting content in the mainstream media has increased sharply over the past decade. Terms such as “structural racism” and “racial inequality” have spiked in use. The lazy reason we’re all given is that this is a sign racial issues are finally being treated with due seriousness. The truth is much more sinister.

Many people have noticed that the mainstream media now pushes race issues at every opportunity. The major news shows now feature racial issues in almost every broadcast. Often, innocuous issues are spun to make it seem that black or brown people are being oppressed in situations when they really aren’t. Spokespeople for racial collectives are featured prominently.

The mainstream media has made it seem as if racial injustice is the single most pressing issue in all of society. With the hysteria around the George Floyd killing, it reached a truly religious fervour. This extreme attention paid to race issues, at the expense of class issues, is part of a deliberate divide-and-conquer strategy.

The simple story is that the mainstream media is owned by international banking and finance interests, and these interests control the loyalties of the ruling class of every Western nation.

The last thing those interests want is for the lower classes to unify, because if the lower classes did unify it would be against the international banking and finance interests and their lackeys. So those interests direct their employees in the mainstream media to promote racial narratives intended to set those lower classes against each other.

They know that a large proportion of the working class is non-white. By lifting that part up, and by pushing the white part down, they guarantee tension and conflict. Pushing racial consciousness ensures that the non-white working class takes an antagonistic attitudes towards white people, and consequently get rejected by the white working class.

As this column has previously pointed out, the corporate world has thrown itself in behind Black Lives Matter when they did the exact opposite for Occupy Wall Street. This is also deliberate. Although corporations act as if their support for Black Lives Matter is for purely altruistic reasons, the true reason for their support is that promoting racial narratives at the expense of class narratives serves their interests.

Simply put, race divides us more effectively than class does.

Although the white working class has no voice in today’s political scene, they are still some 35% of the population of the West. This means that the majority of poor people in every Western country are white. For these people, being told that they are privileged because of their skin colour – when still poor – is an outrage. But this idea is pushed because, not despite, that it is outrageous.

The primary consequence of pushing the lie that the white working class is privileged is discord between the white working class and the non-white working class. The more that the non-white working class is raised up above the white segment, the more hate is generated. This hate is amplified when the non-white working class is taught to regard the objections of the white working class as racist.

The result of pushing race consciousness in the mainstream media is that the working class has fallen apart. White working class people will not take the side of people who think they are racists, and non-white working class people will not take the side of people who they think are oppressors. This mutual antagonism prevents the working class from coalescing towards any common goal.

Meanwhile, the ruling class laughs, their opposition crippled by infighting.

The mainstream media has induced such an advanced state of race neurosis that many people are too afraid to discuss racial topics at all. Now we just meekly surrender while the mainstream media browbeats us into submission for the supposed crimes of our ancestors. Thanks to a decade of this psychological pressure, our minds have become warped into thinking through a racial lens.

This myopically race-based way of thinking means that class narratives are forgotten, and, with their loss, the opportunity for class-based resistance to the predations of our rulers becomes impossible.

The mainstream media will only very rarely discuss an issue from a working-class perspective, because that strengthens the enemies of their owners. Acknowledging the legitimacy of working-class consciousness is to acknowledge that the working class might have a legitimate grievance, or at least a legitimate reason to pull together. Much better to split them in two by promoting racial consciousness.

This divide and conquer strategy is used elsewhere. Western intelligence agencies use their control of media organs to sow discord in geopolitical rivals. For example, instead of speaking of China as a single unit, they will divide it into the oppressors who live urban and the oppressed who live rural. Then they push the rural narrative for the sake of promoting rural consciousness at the expense of national consciousness.

Occupy Wall Street terrified the international banking and finance interests that control the apparatus of propaganda. Those interests saw their class enemies pulling together under a common banner. Ever since then, the mainstream media has gone to extreme lengths to promote racial consciousness ahead of class consciousness. The rioting of 2020 suggests that they mostly succeeded.

The Ultimate Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory

2020 so far has been the year of the Coronavirus, probably the biggest thing to happen to the world since World War II. As with every major event, plenty of bullshit has been spoken about it. This has led to an inevitable spate of conspiracy theories. This article describes the ultimate COVID-19 conspiracy.

Most conspiracy theories arise to explain otherwise inexplicable behaviour on the part of the ruling class. The great replacement theory arose to explain why Western elites allow so much mass immigration. Another theory suggests that cannabis prohibition was instituted to repress freethinking, not to protect mental health.

The ultimate coronavirus conspiracy theory arose in the aftermath of the economic damage done to Western societies by lockdowns. It isn’t easy to explain why Western rulers are willing to do so much damage to their economies for the sake of a virus that has a 99.7%+ survival rate. Some calculations suggest that the economic damage done by the lockdowns will kill more people than the virus.

One conspiracy theory has it that these lockdowns are part of a Communist revolution, in which the followers of Marx seek to deal a fatal blow to capitalism by destroying as many businesses as they can. The uncertainty created by the threat of further lockdowns has made many businesses go bankrupt, and some think this economic disruption may have been the goal all along.

This theory shares some features with the ultimate coronavirus conspiracy, but the ultimate one is more scientific.

Many climatologists contend that the Earth’s climate is being placed under intolerable stress right now. According to the theories put forward, the volume of industrial emissions getting pumped into the Earth’s atmosphere is so vast that it has started to heat up the planet. Earth’s temperature has spiked in recent years, and if we keep producing emissions at this rate it will continue to climb.

The problem: if the temperature of the planet would heat up by more than a few degrees, human life would no longer be possible. The ecosystems of the Earth are so finely balanced that any change in temperature will cause disruption and death. A two degree temperature rise would have catastrophic effects on food yields, and thus on the viability of human civilisation.

It follows from this line of reasoning that our current course of action is like being in a car that’s accelerating into a brick wall. The emissions we’ve already pumped into the atmosphere have raised the Earth’s temperature by 0.6 degrees, and half of those have been in the last 30 years. Another few decades of emissions will raise it by two degrees or more. If we don’t change course – and drastically – we’re all going to die.

It follows from that line of reasoning that any measure, no matter how extreme, is permissible if it achieved the goal of preventing ecological collapse. Reducing our industrial emissions is an imperative – if we don’t, we’re dead. It simply doesn’t matter how we do this. No price is too high to avoid ecological collapse.

The world’s industries produce their emissions as an inescapable byproduct of meeting the world’s demand for goods and services. The only way to reduce emissions to a level where the planet can survive is to reduce economic activity, perhaps by shutting down all of the advanced economies of the world.

Any idiot can anticipate that people would resist such a proposal. After all, we all know that when the elite ask us to make sacrifices, they don’t intend to make any themselves. An economic shutdown would primarily affect the already poor.

How, then, to get the world to accept a drastic reduction to their standard of living? As rulers have always known, put enough fear through a population and they’ll do whatever you tell them to. Author Michael Crichton described it simply: “Social control is best managed by fear.”

The usual sources of fear are absent this year. There is no sign of a war on the horizon, and the Muslims have been quiet since the Christchurch mosque shooting. So the ruling class had to go back to the tried and true: a pandemic.

The ultimate coronavirus conspiracy theory has it that the world’s ruling classes took the opportunity presented by the COVID-19 outbreak to dismantle the world’s economy under the guise of fighting the virus. The real motive behind the lockdowns is to reduce fossil fuel emissions. The coronavirus pandemic might have happened naturally, and might be a real thing with real victims, but the lockdown measures are only superficially related to the pandemic itself.

The true purpose of these intensely intrusive rolling lockdowns is to suffocate the world’s economic’s activity. This is why no-one cares about the severe GDP contractions: those are not drawbacks but objectives.

Even though socialist rulers like Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand or Dan Andrews in Victoria are successfully destroying capitalism in the areas under their control, the lockdowns aren’t a Communist conspiracy to destroy the West. Capitalism, and the economies of the world, are being destroyed to save the environment.

We can predict from this that the lockdowns will continue until living standards in the West are reduced to around the level experienced by Brazil today, or less. This might take five or ten years to achieve.

Clown World Chronicles: What Is A ‘Glowie’?

Alternative movements have always been concerned about spies within their ranks. It’s a fact of life that if you get any kind of interesting movement happening, the Establishment will try to fuck it up before it becomes a threat to them. Their agents who they task to do so are often referred to as ‘glowies’.

The term comes from the belief that infiltrators into certain groups stand out so much that it is as if they glow in the dark. Agents provocateur can enter Internet spaces and start agitating for violence as a way of poisoning the well. Sometimes these individuals stand out like a television screen stands out in a dark room.

A ‘glowie’ (or ‘glownigger’) is an infiltrator, usually a government-controlled one, who is advocating for some action that brings the group into disrepute. Their purpose is to sow discord and division within alternative movements, with the intent that those movements either collapse from infighting or are banned.

Some believe that federal intelligence agents are regular visitors to certain Internet locations. According to this belief, the security services are concerned that these Internet forums are radicalising young men into taking violent actions that threaten the Establishment. Both Anders Breivik and Brenton Tarrant were known to spend a lot of time online, and the security services want to preempt the next one like them.

Support for beliefs like this come from known facts about psychological operations such as Operation Mockingbird, in which the CIA made an effort to use the power of mass media to manipulate public opinion, molding it to be more conducive to achieving America’s security objectives.

Operation Mockingbird saw the CIA plant or recruit individuals within the mainstream media, who then used their position in the apparatus of propaganda to regiment the public’s opinions on certain matters. With control of enough media sources, the CIA was able to manufacture consent for evils like the Vietnam War.

The CIA claims to no longer do this, but evidence suggests they do. The mainstream media happily did the cheerleading for the Iraq War, just as willingly as if they had taken direction from the CIA itself. It wasn’t until after then that social media had become popular enough to threaten the television’s stranglehold on popular perception.

The rise of the Internet, the story has it, provided a new challenge to the CIA’s ability to control the narrative. Once people were able to discuss things in online groups of likeminded people, away from those trying to manipulate them, they started arriving at conclusions that the ruling class didn’t want them to.

Thanks to the Internet, people were able to get together and realise that the government was lying about cannabis, was lying about psychedelics, was lying about wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam (and everywhere else), was lying about acting in the people’s interest, was lying about their rights to enforce laws on an unconsenting populace etc.

Thanks to the Internet, many slaves came to leave the thought plantation.

The ultimate threat to the CIA’s narrative control comes from imageboards. On these boards, people from all around the world get together to discuss politics without interference from mainstream media brands and personalities. This leads them to draw conclusions that are unpalatable to their rulers.

To destroy imageboard culture, or so those afraid of glowies say, federal agents have descended on them with the specific intent of encouraging acts of violence. This violence achieves two major goals: associating violence with a particular imageboard can help to get it banned, and successful terrorist attacks cause the security services to get more government funding.

All this explains why, if someone suggests that the way forward is to start shooting people, that person will be called a “glowie” and told to piss off.

In reality, secret security officers don’t agitate to have politicians killed. That would be like a pub bouncer specifically inviting patched gang members into the bar to fight the bartenders, with the intent that the pub owner will then expand their security apparatus by hiring more bouncers. Secret security officers, like any other professional, are judged on how well their achieve their core responsibilities. Theirs are to keep politicians safe.

However, it’s true that the security services keep close tabs on alternative thinkers and places where alternative thinkers gather. They would be remiss not to, on account of that, historically speaking, challenges to the system are often violent. Ever since the assassination of President McKinley by anarchist Leon Czolgosz, those tasked with protecting the Establishment have believed that threats can arise from anywhere that freethinking is allowed to fester.

The author of this book has been visited by police officers who wanted to interrogate him about his political beliefs. This is becoming more and more common throughout Clown World. Glowies don’t encourage people to kill politicians online, but they’re sure not above letting freethinkers know they’re being watched.
